Welcome to the Total Learning Center 2018-19.
My name is Katrina Bryant. I am a graduate from University of Houston Clear Lake. I have a Master Degree in Early Childhood Education with an emphasis on young children with disabilities. This is my 10th year working for Sheldon. I have a wonderful teaching assistant, Jami Clair. We are looking forward to the new school year.
